Indoor and outdoor seating Yaaaay!!!

Finally !

We have been been approved for outdoor dining by the Town of Greece, and outdoor seating is now available, although very limited at this time. 

The Lamplighter has never had outdoor seating before, so please be patient with us. Our goal is to provide you with great food and service while keeping everyone safe in the process.

Our dining room is back open, beginning tonight June 12, 2020.

Of course with restrictions. We are only permitted to seat at 50% capacity, which right now is 6 tables in our dining room, and 5 patio tables. We reccommend that you make a reservation to ensure you get a table. We are seating first come, first serve, if you dont reserve a table.  Because of our limited seating situation, we have time limits as follows:

Parties of 2 - 1 hour, Parties of 3 & 4 - 1 1/2 hours. parties of 5/7 - 2 hours.

thank you for your continued support



We will be also adding a tent to our parking area which will provide additional seating very soon. Please continue to visit our website in the coming weeks for further updates.



Due to COVID-19, there are new guidelines when dining out and we are adhering to those guidelines in every way. Tables are distanced 6 ft. apart, we cannot accommodate parties over 10. Our staff will be using masks at all times, & customers must wear masks unless seated. At this time, we would prefer you pay by credit card, but we also accept cash.

Each table will be thoroughly sanitized between each seating. We appreciate your understanding & patience as we adapt to our “new” and ever changing normal.


Thank you all for your continued support of the small businesses in our community. Every bit helps, and our staff at the Lamplighter truly appreciate your business now and always. Stay safe and God bless!

Our Story

The Lamplighter Restaurant is evolving. Established in 1970 by Nick Castronova, the Lamplighter quickly became a favorite of local Rochester residents as well as out-of-town clientele. Continental cuisine highlighted by Italian specialties make that romantic dinner for two or party for fifty an event you won't soon forget. 

In July of 2015, long time employee Lisa Seifert purchased the restaurant from Castronova. After making some cosmetic changes to bring the decor up to date, while still keeping the warm and cozy feel that everyone has come to love over years, Lisa reintroduced the restaurant as her own.

In February of 2019, the Lamplighter happily announced Michael Seifert as their new Executive Chef. Michael has over 13 years of culinary experience and was previously the Sous Chef and Executive Chef at Branca in Bushnell’s Basin. Michael’s passion for cooking started at a young age while in the kitchen making homemade pasta with his father and grandmother, and inherited his passion for the restaurant business from his mother, Lisa. He believes in using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible and giving customers the “this is the best I’ve ever had!” experience.


Previous Executive Chef, William (Elliott) Rodwell, who has been with the Lamplighter for over 26 years, now has a part-time role in the kitchen alongside Michael, and the two make a great team!

Together, Michael and Elliott are committed to maintaining the culinary excellence you’ve come to love and expect from the Lamplighter for 50 years.


Our Menu

The Lamplighter offers a wide variety of dishes that include salads, pasta, chicken, veal, seafood and steak. Chef Michael Seifert crafts a new menu each season including long-time favorites as well as his added flair.

Wine List

The wine offerings at the Lamplighter Restaurant have been carefully selected by our experienced staff to provide you with a wide variety of white wines, red wines, and sparkling wines. Our staff will happily assist you in pairing a bottle of wine with your meal, to enhance the flavor of each bite.
